Takefumi Sakata (29-4-1, 14) Vs Lorenzo Parra (28-0, 17) III
Rivalries in boxing are great and it's fair to say that the rivalry between Japan's Takefumi Sakata and Venezuela's Lorenzo Parra was certainly a good one with the men meeting 3 times in less than 3 years. The first two bouts saw Parra retaining his title by razor thin majority decision and although the set backs certainly were hard for Sakata though the Japanese fighter refused to give up and in and took on the then WBA Flyweight champion for the third time, with Parra returning to the ring after more than a year of inactivity.
